Got another amazing guest blogger for you today, and it's another great travel post. This time Bethan from A Pretty Place to Play is going to show us all her favourite places to visit in New York.
Hello fellow Daisy Dayz readers! I was so excited when Chantele asked me to share my favourite thing!
My favourite thing is a trip to New York City! Nothing beats waling up in the uber cool Ace Hotel, grabbing a delicious cup of Stumptown coffee to go and strolling the buzzing streets of the big apple in spring.
Because I love New York so much I thought I would share just a few of my favourite places in the City:
Bryant Park Reading Room - an open air library that is a little oasis bang in the centre of Manhattan

The High Line - the ultimate repurposing project, The High Line is a disused railway track converted in to a community park and walkway meandering several stories high through the West Side from Gansevoort Street to W34th Street (between 10th and 11th Avenues) (and past DVF, a supporter of the project).
The High Line
The Staten Island Ferry - I like a bargain, and this is one of my favourite NYC freebies! The ferry takes you on a journey past Lady Liberty and gives a great view of Lower Manhattan. Departing near Battery Park, it is the ideal place to reflect after a trip to the 9/11 Memorial.
Grand Central Terminal - this place is so pretty you would never guess it is a railway station! Drop by to bask in its unexpected beauty, and if you like you can pick up an Apple product.

Walk through Central Park to Columbia University - technically not one place, but that is semantics! Take an afternoon to stroll through this beautiful park and observe New Yorkers at play. Drop by the Alice in Wonderland statue to hang out with Alice and the Mad Hatter, and remember Lennon for a moment. Get some exercise by hiking up to the wide streets of Morningside Heights and check out Tom's Restaurant
where you can pretend you are in Seinfeld.

Bloomingdales - deco opulence is having a moment, and Bloomies has it in spades. The lovely store design is complemented by a great range of lux products, charming assistant and offers for international visitors.
I am so jealous of Bethan, I would totally love to visit New York and see all the amazing sites she saw. Thank you for the post!
